Easy Swedish Meatballs Recipe (Crockpot Optional)


  •  1-1/2 pounds ground beef
  •  1/2 pound ground pork
  •  2 eggs
  •  1 cup milk
  •  1/2 cup quick oats
  •  1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  •  1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  •  1/2 teaspoon pepper
  •  1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  •  3-5 dashes hot sauce
  •  3 cans cream of mushroom soup
  •  1-1/2 cans water
  •  5 lbs boiled potatoes


  1. Combine all meatball ingredients (ground beef through hot sauce) in a large bowl. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil, then spray lightly with nonstick spray. With moistened hands, shape the meat into balls that are about the size of a ping pong ball. (It doesn’t really matter as long as they are uniform.) Place them on the baking sheet; you can put them right next to each other, just make sure they’re not touching. Bake in a 450? oven for 11-16 minutes, until they are brown and starting to get crispy on top.
  2. You can cook this in the oven or in the crock pot:
  3. Oven directions: In a 9×13 casserole dish, combine mushroom soup with 1-1/2 cans of water. Add the meatballs and stir. Bake at 350?for 1 hour.
  4. Crock pot: Combine the soup and water in the crock pot. Add meatballs and stir. Heat on low for 5-7 hours, or on high for 3-4. You just need it to get hot.
  5. Serve over boiled potatoes
